Yeah, only mine was a blue line. this is usually caused by a faulty capacitor. The only simple way of fixing this, is to replace the monitor, or try a different, one and see if it still occurs. If it does, then try a different, Cable. if this still does not fix it, then you are looking at an internal problem with the video hardware.

Ask analog imput red green blue white

Looks to be a bad communication between the display and the computer. Make sure the display is in the active video port - Sometimes there's more then one video connection. Check with another display on that same computer. Open the computer and check to make sure the video card hasn't unseated itself.
If you try a second display and it does the same as the first display. try another video card. Was This Helpful? YES or no.

Where to Download Intel Motherboard drivers

Before you proceed to the Intel download center you will need the model number of your motherboard.

Click here to go to the official Intel Driver Download Center.

1) Firstly type in the model number of your Intel motherboard into the box under the Search downloads heading.
2) Then click Search downloads.
3) Once this is done the following screen will be displayed showing all available drivers for the motherboard.
You can select the Operating System that you are currently running to narrow the search down to only the drivers you need. Then you can select what kind of drivers you want the search to display, whether it be all Drivers, Bios drivers, Software Applications, Documentation or Utilities, Tools and Examples.

The compatible drivers are then displayed below the ... results matching heading.
You can also change the language of the search by selecting your preferred language from the drop down box as shown below circled in red. You can select between motherboards that are recent or older boards that have been discontinued by checking the Discontinued Products option circled in blue in the picture below.

Then you will just need to select which driver you want and then it will take you to the download page for that file. Download it and install. Lastly you will need to restart your system.

NOTE: The Intel download support center is only for motherboards that are manufactured by intel. If you have a motherboard that is made by Gigabyte for example then the drivers for it won't be on the Intel download center.

Check your monitor buttons. Check for any buttons that adjusts the brightness. Press it and the white box should disappear.

I was watching a youtube video. Started fast forwarding through the video when all of a sudden the computer screen went white with light blue streaks but computer was still running. I could still hear...

Try connecting a know good monitor and see if you are able to see the display, if so your monmitor is toast and needs to be replaced. I hope this helped. Good luck and have a great day.

White and red box saying out of range

The resolution of the display is set higher than what your monitor can support. Boot into Safe Mode, Right click on display, Properties, Settings, at Screen resolutions select the default resolution of your monitor 1024x768 or 1280x1024, depending on the version .

Main screen only has three boxes BGR

The monitor is telling you it's not getting a signal from the computer. The message is displayed to show the monitor is on and can display an image, but the computer is not sending video. Probably the computer is not starting up, or there has been a failure of the video card. You'll need to check into the cause.

Monitor shows a image uo until sign on screen then goes blank

Does it go blank before you signon, or when you sign on? If before boot to SAFE MODE and check the video display settings.. you man have settings your monitor can't understand.
If that doesn't work and you get to input your signon and then it goes blank you most likly have a virus or malware.
Log into safe mode, and use SYSTEM RESTORE to a time before you stated having the problem.
